A “free activist” with this gun owns a library with thousands of Colorado school children

When conspiracy theorist Cindy Ficklin applied to become a Colorado school principal six months ago, she had a photo of herself holding a pistol online.

“It was either my Glock 42 or my Glock 43,” she told The Daily Beast this week.

Ficklin also posted a document about an envisioned global conspiracy among the super-rich elite, led by billionaire George Soros.

“If you don’t know who George Soros is … you’re not alone-(he’s one of the shadow monsters),” she writes. “Soros seems to control even the Rothschilds … (dominates all the banks in the world). Bill Gates is Rothschild, by the way. (I included his family tree as evidence.) And [Anthony] Faucio is a member of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Board of Directors. And Fauici is responsible for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) … controlling the use of hydroxychloroquine and everything we eat about this virus. … including Maskman Date-(This strips our identity and turns us into sheep. “

Soros does not control the Rothschilds, and Gates is not part of that legendary family. Fauci is not a member of the Gates Foundation board, NIH does not oversee the use of hydroxychloroquine, and what Mask does is save lives. This nonsense came from a person who is trying to teach and run Mesa County Valley School District 51 and its 22,000 children with 1,300 teachers.

No one who read Ficklin’s linked misconceptions or saw pictures of guns was so surprised that the 47-year-old principal didn’t get a job at a real estate agent. She was also the only conservative, calm math teacher on the five-member school board, and failed to bid to replace a football coach named Paul Piton.

However, she succeeded in leading an effort to introduce a new wave of “conservative thinking” individuals to the county school board. And perhaps more worrisome, she is now looking to the state legislature.

The event that triggered Ficklin was the August 13 Board of Education meeting that led to Pitton’s decision to resign. The meeting became very noisy and he and his colleagues were given protective police escorts from the building. When the board shortened public comment time, those who disguised themselves as “parental rights” were furious.

“People are just too crazy,” Pitton told The Daily Beast. “I think it has caused the worst of people since the announcement of COVID.”

Ficklin attended the meeting as a high school parent and as a self-proclaimed “free activist.” She said people were already angry with the obligations and talks about gender liquidity and the supposed teachings of critical race theory.

“It awakened us,” she said. “Isn’t that an ironic word?”

She says people planning to speak were indignant when the board reduced the total time allotted to public comments from 45 minutes to 35 minutes.

“It just stood up loud and said,’It’s not okay,'” Ficklin insisted.

Board members have virtually finished their executive session. One of them heard that those who interfered with the meeting and needed evacuation were “rebels.”

“It’s a bad idea,” Ficklin told The Daily Beast.

Ficklin states that this statement had an incendiary effect. Attendance at the weekly “Stands for the Constitution” meeting of local conservatives at the Appleton Church, which helped Ficklin organize, increased from 25 to 600. She was the leader in an effort to leave the three school board members who were aiming for reelection and set up candidates to their liking.

“We decided we needed a really conservative thinking individual,” she said. “We organized and mobilized. We knocked on thousands of doors. It was completely grassroots.”

The elections were so close that the results were uncertain until 4 am the next day.

“We got all three,” Ficklin said. “It gives us a majority.”

Despite the mysterious COVID-19 surge filling state hospitals near the threshold, the other seven Colorado County Boards of Education have also turned conservative and anti-delegation. Instructions on where the new majority would take the mesa were expected to come on Saturday at the second “Board of Education Coffee” held as they were interrupted by a pandemic. Ficklin announced on Friday that she would give what she calls a “speech to retiring board members.”

“When I was the principal of a school, if a teacher came to me with a problem … I always told them to bring at least one viable solution,” Ficklin said. Prepared remarks have begun. “There are many problems in the school district, and thank God for turning over the school board so that we can actually work on improving these problems.”

Parents on both sides of the large watershed will agree with her call for better salaries for teachers and better treatment for submarines. She also points to the need for better dietary services and organizes them for parents to participate. Such efforts can connect people.

But her first proposal under her top priority, “Solutions !!!”, was divisive and political.

“Let’s start by letting go of the high-paying executive directors of equity and inclusion,” she said.

Ficklin also said, “FIRE teachers who sexualize our children … FIRE teachers who make them feel terrible about themselves.”

They seem to include teachers who delve into issues such as race and gender identity.

Her prepared remarks did not mention masks or vaccines. But she has declared her opposition to all sorts of orders. Don’t worry if they save lives.

“I want to fight for freedom and freedom,” she said.

And when Ficklin launches the House District 55 campaign in the Legislature, she always talks about the move she assembled as a kind of revenge on her and the school board that rejected her view.

“Okay. Fine. Hey? I went ahead and submitted the paperwork today, and now I’m announcing for representatives of the 55 House District states,” she posted on Facebook. I said in. “This was wrong at all levels, so I’m going to make sure this doesn’t happen again. The school board can’t go to the community and do it. Make sure you get this state, this country, and this school district back. intend to.”

She later admitted that she didn’t know how to act as a political candidate at all.

“I’m having a hard time transitioning from a freelance activist to a candidate,” she said in an online post. “So I decided to be myself in all of that.”

Hey, if Mesa County can participate in sending Lauren Boebert to Washington as a U.S. congressman from Colorado’s Third Parliamentary District, why not send a gun-armed conspiracy theorist to state legislators?

Meanwhile, Ficklin says she didn’t know that some might consider her remarks about Soros and his supposed cabal to be anti-Semitic.

“I was very angry that the person talking about the wealthy elite family that dominates the world for about five days was anti-Semitic,” she said. “I support Israel.”

She also denied the online claim that she was a follower of Q-Anon.

“I’ve been in that category because I’ve attended various meetings that Q-Anon’s collaborators also attended,” she said. “But I’m not a Q-Anon collusion.”

But she is a false donor in the growing grassroots movement, threatening our children to learn in what should be a true sanctuary.
